The Society was formed in 1971 after the World Ploughing Match was held in Nynehead at    Heywood Farm.   Local people put on an exhibition to tell visitors about the village which led to the formation of the society.   Its aim then was the undertaking of research and meetings involved talks on that work, as well as speakers on various subjects.   The society is the oldest Local History Society in the area and continued until March 2020, when Covid-19 intervened and the scheduled programme of talks and outings had to be cancelled.


Normally talks are held monthly in the Memorial Hall from October to May inclusively.   Outings, usually connected to the winter talks, again take place each month during June to September.   Hopefully, the programme will resume in the autumn so the society can make it to its 50th year.
